The German name Kiehl may be a place name in origin: one who came from Kiel, an area of standing water, the name of several places in Germany.

Keel is a bottom of a boat. Keel is from the middle english kele, from the word kiel which meant 'boat'. http://www.internetnow.co.uk/dutchusa/nlusword.htm

Kael is a varient of the boys name Cael. Click on Cael link.

I am very sure it's really from Kiel, and is german. The name has something to do with boats and water.
